This is an excellent restaurant if you are in the mid or upper partof Manhattan. It combines "traditional" and restaurant style eating. (Traditional: the food is placed in excellent woven baskets/tables). Good selections, attentive service.

This Ethiopian restaurant was very average. The seating was nonexistent. For a party of six to sit around a huge circular pit of a table and to have no place really to place your drinks was absurd. The food was bland and tasteless. The vegetarian...More
